This $3.3 million Austin home has a theater that looks like an airplane cabin


Love movies? Love travel? Have several million dollars to spend on a new home? You’re in luck.

This 4,809-square-foot home for sale in West Austin features a home theater and entertainment room that will make you feel like you’re 40,000 feet above the earth.

The house on Scout Island Circle, listed for nearly $3.3 million, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. But it’s the media room that'll grab your attention. Inside the room are wall panels from a Qantas 767 to give the feel of a real-life airplane cabin. And yes, those are real airplane seats: the room contains seven first-class seats from a Delta L-1011 (including built-in trays and seatbelts, so you can get the full experience).

You can even store your snacks and luggage in the overhead bins, also taken from a Qantas 767.

Oh, and the theater system itself is pretty nice: the screen is 90 inches and of course, there’s surround sound.

If the airplane room doesn’t sell you on the house, the other features might: There’s a private boat ramp with access to Lake Austin, and the house has a glass-encased “bridge” connecting the two wings of the home, divided by reflection pools and a center courtyard.
